    Ok, i was just wondering whether your school paid for admissions tests for university.
    I need to take the LNAT in december which is £40 that I really cannot afford. And since i dont get the full £30 EMA the school wont pay for me. Although ive found out today that the oxbridge applicants at my sixth form have had their tests paid for by the college and i know that none of them are the recipients of EMA at all.
    Do you think its worth me asking whether they could do the same for me? Or do oxbridge applicants get all the special treatment? (No bitterness intended )

    Asfar asI know the only Oxbridge test that anyone has to pay for is the BMAT. I think all the others are free to everyone and paid by the university. If you college paid for the BMAT though then maybe find out why because it's not only used by oxbridge so it would seem unfair not to pay for yours too

    no biomedical, for medicine and biomedical science. I think you have to pay for STEP which is for maths. Did your college pay for all those as well, and for the LNAT for oxbridge?

    You only sit an admissions test for Maths at Oxford and there is no charge for it. Cambridge require you to sit STEP, Warwick too, but that isn't sat until next June just ater the A level exams which there is a charge for.
